Our Subjects / Ā Mātou Kaupapa:

Where can I find more information on carbon dioxide in the atmosphere?

LEVEL: Secondary

Carbon dioxide plays a small but important role in the Earth's atmosphere. It helps to regulate the Earth's temperature, and is essential to the life cycle of plants and animals.

Nasa is a great site that is full of information about all sorts of topics. Type Carbon dioxide in the search box and follow the links to find many articles. Click on the The Carbon Cycle: Feature Articles to find lots of relevant information with links to other interesting data. These links are on the right hand side of the page. 

Windows to the Universe  also has a lot of interesting facts about Carbon Dioxide. Type Carbon Dioxide into the search box. Although this site is primarily focused towards teachers there are links to sites with good information for students. Windows to the Universe was developed in conjunction with The UCAR Center for Science Education. Both of these sites have some good basic facts.

HOT TIP: We like sites that are from government or other reputable organisations, because we can trust the information. You can tell these sites by their web address – they have .gov, .edu or .org in their address.

We also really like the How Stuff Works website for finding information about science. Click on the link to the website and perform a search using the keywords Carbon dioxide. A list of interesting results should appear. A good place to start with is the article Carbon Dioxide.   

EPIC is a collection of reliable databases covering a lot of different topics. It’s put together especially for New Zealand school students and helps to answer questions like this. We recommend looking at Science in Context, and the Britannica School sitesChoose Secondary in Britannica School. Type Carbon dioxide in the search box in each resource. 

HOT TIP:To get to the EPIC databases you will need a password from your school librarian first. Or, you can log on to between 1 and 6pm Monday to Friday, and one of the librarians can help you online. Some EPIC databases may also be available through your public library.
